MY HOME DELI : the home of excellent Chinese Comfort Food!!!

Thanks to Rave Reviews from

I just had to visit this unassuming restaurant
at the corner of T.M. Kalaw and M. Orosa in Ermita:

And now, I'm hooked!!!

This small delicateseen serves some of the most
delectable Chinese dishes this side of Binondo:

The unforgettable SHANGHAI FRIED RICE!!!

I loved this;
the consistency of the rice reminds me of the famous "wet paella",
and as an added bonus, the whole serving (good for two),
comes enrobed, crepe-like, in a scrambled egg wrap.


The outstanding BEEF HOFAN!!!

I had no idea what a "hofan" was,
but since Ajay recommended this, I was hopin' it was good;

and yes, it is definitely gooooood:
Hofan is an oriental version of Fettuccini,
basically, a wide, flat rice noodle.
The "pasta sauce", in this case, is very tender beef,
stir fried to perfection with spicy tendrils of green onions.

Definitely worth a return visit;
you can't beat attentive service, three kinds of Coke on the menu,
clean surroundings, and very affordable, very good food
(P120 for the rice, P150 for the noodles)...

and yes, I shall return,
if only to take pictures of plates
that haven't been ravaged and emptied!!!


just click on the names of Ajay and Sakai above
if you want to see the My Home food porn pictures!
